As promised, the first new Public Image Ltd. song in 20 years — a lilting, almost dub-ska track called “One Drop” — received its worldwide debut today via Steve Lamacq’s afternoon show on BBC’s 6 Music. You can stream the track, with the DJ’s intro and outro, via the player below. The song will be released on a vinyl EP as part of Record Store Day on April 21 in advance of the release of the full-length This Is PiL in May or June. Check out full details on the first new PiL music since 1992’s That What Is Not right here.
